Introduction: Let's Play
Welcome to Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 8! I chose
the theme of “play” because sex and desire have so many elements
of playfulness. I wanted to see where these authors could take that
playfulness in the name of turning readers on.
As you’re about to read, the word “play” can have many meanings.
The characters here play music, play sex games, play with
gender, play with fetishes, dress up for LARPing, engage in threesomes,
enjoy outdoor sex, and so much more. They play with each
other, they play with their own ideas of how to get off, and they
play with their relationships. They ignite passion with strangers
and rekindle the flames with longtime partners. They have threesomes
and go on sex vacations and create their own very personal
In the opening story, “Until the Last Note Plays” by Rilzy
Adams, exes Sage and Garrick reunite after six years and find a
very intimate way to work through their issues. Adams writes,
“She kissed him like she could find the answer to all of life’s
burning questions on his tongue.” The sparks continue to fly in
the next twenty stories, whether in a forbidden rendezvous in the
audience of a theater in Eva Leigh’s “The Devil Take You” or in an
erotic adventure that unlocks untold pleasures in Diva Darling’s
“Frenzy.” In Souma Midwinter’s “Character Work,” Jeannie and
Alex see if the roles they play onstage can continue when it comes
to getting naked backstage.
You’ll discover the thrill of a couple’s exploration in “It Feels
Good” by Clare London and the sexual excitement of meeting an
online partner, who may or may not be what they seem,
in “How Real Are You?” by Christina Berry. You’ll also travel to
a planet far, far away in Robin Lovett’s “Out of this World” and
discover some paranormal eroticism in Fiona Zedde’s “Whenever
You Need Me” and Cat Giraldo’s “Checkmate.”
There’s also plenty of BDSM here, as in the kinky game in Julie
Fennell’s femdom story “So Many Ways to Win” and the bondage
delights in P. Stormcrow’s “The Mid-Autumn Moon.”
Within these pages, couples discover new aspects of their most
personal, sensual selves in stories such as Ruby Lang’s “Happy
Now” and Rosanna Leo’s “The Reset Button,” which blend
romance and longstanding passion with the hottest of sex acts.
Every story in this book unlocks sex play in a different way,
providing personal revelations, playing out sexual fantasies, and
exploring fetishes, with plenty of orgasms, pleasure and sensual
excitement. I hope you enjoy the way these characters play, and
that their fun inspires some playfulness in your life.
